Innovate Carolina - Open Innovation - April 15

Open Innovation – Buzzphrase-du-jour or viable product development tool?

Join us April 15 on the UNCC campus in Charlotte, NC for a full-day of networking and engaging discussions as we unpack that very question.

Unlike other conferences that tackle this topic, we’ll hear from Product Development leaders speaking about real-world case studies, including stories from the field about:
- How ideas from outside of a firm are generated and collected through contests, trend spotting, and tech scouting
- How Open Innovation concepts should be evaluated and managed differently from internally-generated concepts, and what happens when they aren’t
- How an Open Innovation process fits in a traditional product development culture

Why should you join the Innovate Carolina Conference?

- To FIND leading-edge tools to separate you from your peers at your company
- To DISCOVER how the thought leaders in innovation are creating growth
